Those that have recovered from depression - how do you prevent a relapse?
I was never 'officially' diagnosed (due to drs not listening and refusing to believe a teenager could have depression), but I had depression a few years back. I recovered and have been really good for the last 18 months or so. But I'm now going through a rough time (uni stress, had to end things with someone i liked, house stress as well as work stress). Nothing seems to be going well and I'm feeling pretty low again. I've been off my food, feeling bad about myself, and earlier I suddenly had an urge to SH again (something that I haven't done in years), it came out of nowhere and I was really surprised I felt like that. It soon passed but I'm not good atm and I'm worried I'm going to go down another downward spiral and end up where I was a few years ago. Now, my question is to those that have got through depression, how do you keep positive and on track? I've got pleanty to keep me busy but I need a bit more. Any advice?
